    :toofunny: I've heard that it is only available in the USA though.
    Ah well, at least you can get the one for examining breasts over here. It's called a chesstboard; I understand it's quite popular on pawn sites.

    These puns are awful - you lot deserve to be board to justice.

    According to dictionary.com, a board should be 'of considerable length and breadth compared with the thickness', so by that definition a diving board should actually be called something like a diving plank. You might say that it snowboard.

    (Sorry, couldn't help jumping aboard the bandwagon - hopefully I didn't go overboard.)

    Pfft. That's not the worst of it. It's a carcinogen! Maybe. It'd probably cause something not entirely unlike pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovo lcanoconiosis if you inhale it.
    And, of course, that disease will always be remembered as resulting in lots of medical claims by miners on the National Coal Board.

    I'm still to get board (of this) game! When you get a card off the pun men you will have to put it on your cardboard.

    This thread strikes a board with me. Of course striking a board could result in it becoming a chipboard.

    I considered getting a whiteboard, but I think I'd just draw shapes like spirals on it. I suppose it could be a springboard to being an artist.

    I could also have used it for composing boating songs on. I hear larboard is important in those.

    If you threw the larboard overboard it would drown unless it was a flutterboard. Any one in the water would have to dart out of its way unless they wanted to model a new headboard.

    This gives me the idea for a new weapon: the mortarboard. If it was the deciding factor in a battle it would be the keyboard.

    The headboard could be useful in the boardoir, come to think of it. I won't mention a scoreboard.

    I have both a blackboard and a whiteboard and I find the whiteboard better. Chalk dust gets irritating.
    Obviously, what you really need is a scratchboard.

    P.S. Anyway, buy one of them projector interactive boards.
    But what then would they do with the small change they'd get out of their £10k?

    The last time I tried to go on a pawn site, my parents stopped me browsing the internet for a week by taking away my surfboard.

    In other news, the rail in my sister's wardrobe came loose recently, so until we can get that fixed she's keeping all her clothes behind the skirting board. She recently dropped her acoustic guitar flat on its front; upon inspecting it, I told her I was surprised it didn't even have a scratch on it. She replied, in her best scouse accent, "yeah, it's a pretty sound board".

    I'd better go make some food, anyway. Though I was squashing up berries on a flat surface yesterday to make some jam, and they seem to have stained it; I hope it hasn't turned into a currants-y board, or my dinner is going to taste awful.

    Schools in Newquay with a sea view will be able to install "surfboards".

    I would say the pun is on the boarder-line of being overextended

    Well, we do have a predilection for taking things to the limit, so I'm afraid you might have to field extensions far beyond the norm.

    Sebastian Boardais has lost his seat at Toro Rosso. Seeing as he will no longer have use of his F1 car, I suggest he calls a taxi; in other words, he needs to make a caboarder.

    The quality level has certainly gone by the board.
